Aaron and Alayne play heightened versions of their awkward teenage selves, here to drop some knowledge, help you navigate your adulthood anxieties and teach you about the hazards of life. What exactly those hazards are is up to the audience.

The show is mostly improvised within a preset structure. At the top of the show, the audience is asked about things that they love. The spine of the show is then an improvised, three act story about the dangers of that thing. For example, they have previously done shows about the dangers of too much rugby, Netflix and artisanal bread.

In between acts they play games and use scripted material that riffs off teen trends and tropes. Examples of these games include rapping about our anxieties, summerising books that you studied in high school and answering audience questions in the form of advice letters.

The main narrative then follows a path where the protagonist makes a lot of destructive decisions and then usually dies. To end the show, an audience member is asked for a different choice the character could have made, we rewind back to that moment, and then the story is resolved using their suggestion.
